Abstract – Jennifer Brain The purpose of this project was to develop and evaluate a mobile application for individuals with coeliac disease with particular reference to human computer interaction. With the increase in the number of people being diagnosed with the condition, this brings a growing demand for newer and updated resources. The literature review highlights how mobile technology has become the most popular form of wireless communication and how the use of mobile applications has risen dramatically over recent years. However, this also brings more challenges to the developer in terms of how the application and device interacts with the user. Therefore, HCI usability guidelines are outlined in the literature review and are used throughout the design and implementation process. Also, research has revealed that developing mobile applications can be time consuming and the developer must have experience with using the programming languages associated with these platforms in order to produce a fully working system. Without this knowledge and HCI guidelines, the design and development of the application would be of a low standard. The methods of collecting data for this project are discussed in the methodology chapter. Participants were a vital part of the development of the application in identifying their needs and expectations. They also played a major part in the evaluation of the application. The user and system requirements were based on users’ suggestions and feedback given in the questionnaires and focus groups which helped towards the success of the project.
